RPS 205 Responds to Internet Hoax


​RPS 205 Administrators are aware of a hoax connected to the Internet. District officials are working with Rockford Police to vet these threats and don't believe they are credible. As a precaution, the district has increased staff and security levels to ensure our schools remain safe. We have also encouraged staff to report any suspicious activity to authorities.

We're sharing this information to inform parents and community members – not to alarm them. We take all threats seriously – whether they appear to be a hoax or not.

Safety is a top priority in Rockford Public Schools. If you have specific concerns, please contact your building principal.

​Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
